Thirteen skippers enjoyed the warm spring sunshine at a picturesque if slightly muddy Sutton Bingham reservoir. Nice for a picnic but sailing was a bit more challenging with a light north westerly and significant thermal activity providing a constantly changing wind direction. Racing was around a large triangular course to try and even things out and possibly provide a beat on one of the legs or at times all the legs of some laps! Thanks to Bryony from Poole volunteering to observe all 13 boats were able to race in one fleet. Racing was well mannered despite the wind but possibly helped by the pleasant sunshine. After 15 races Gavin Watson came out top with 26 points followed by Nick Martin sailing his shiny new Britpop with 36 points just 2 points ahead of local skipper Tony Edwards.
